Camp Amalinda, an African inspired refuge, where world-class facilities combine with the spiritual energy, allure and unique beauty, for which the Matobo Hills is so celebrated. The granite domes and castle kopjes of the Matobo Hills, Zimbabwe, are among the most majestic rock sceneries in the world. Nestled in this unique range of hills is Camp Amalinda, situated only 45kms from Bulawayo.

Amalinda consists of nine individually thatched rooms including 3 honeymoon suites, 3 family rooms, 2 double rooms & 1 single room, which are all set into the huge boulders. Each room is steeped in African historical artefacts of a bygone era and tucked away into an ancient bushman’s shelter, Camp Amalinda’s charm will leave an indelible impression on every visitor.

    Set in the distinctive Matobo Hills, the large granite boulders are the distinguishing feature of Camp Amalinda. All the rooms at the lodge are built into the rocks which adds a very ancient and organic quality. Because of these boulders each room has a completely unique size, shape, and layout – so each one feels special. The pool is very big and beautifully framed by the granite boulders, essentially a gorgeous rock pool, and a very cool respite in the heat of summer. The spa is right by the pool and something I would definitely like to experience next time. History and dramatic natural beauty are the main drawcards to this lodge, the excursions to visit Cecil Rhodes’ grave and ancient San Rock art were particular highlights and it’s a great place for relaxing and taking in your surroundings. Wildlife isn’t as prolific as say, Hwange National Park but of course, the opportunity to track rhinos in the wild is unforgettable. Stargazing on the rocks behind the pool was excellent as well. The lodge is ideal for couples or small groups, but not ideal for anyone having difficulty with stairs or uneven ground. I would recommend it as a relaxing escape for a few days of calm on a holiday and not necessarilyof an adventurous safari, but it depends what you are looking for, and if you are looking for Rhinos and self-reflection it’s perfect!
